Truck Driving & Commercial Road Transport
The SIT Transport and Logistics Training Hub offers specialised training and qualifications for students to develop professional skills driving trucks. The Certificate in Commercial Road Transport is an NZQA Level 3 certificate designed to give you both licences and real industry experience. You'll get real work placements with transport companies from around Southland, the skills and knowledge of relevant transport and health & safety law and practise, as well as gain the licences and endorsements you need for employment in the industry.
SIT's Automotive section has a large well-equipped workshop with equipment including a suspension and brake test lane, vehicle hoists, test equipment and a purpose built Dyno Cell incorporating a Mainline 1200 AWD dyno, tractor dyno and engine dynos. We offer pre-trade certificates in Automotive Engineering, Automotive Heavy Trades and Collision Repair. Students spend three days per week on campus at their course, plus two days per week on work placements which provides real world experience and often leads to apprenticeships.
